. unemployment rising. the economy? it's shrinking. gdp contracting last year for the first time in four years and consumer confidence tanking as that payroll tax hike cuts into workers' paychecks. add it all up, is it time to strike calls for more tax hikes? down. i'm brenda buttner, this is "bulls & bears." we've got gary smith, tobin smith, jonas max ferris, and john layfield and susan fox. the white house and democratic leaders still pushing tax hikes. should they be? >> absolutely not, brenda. what i don't understand is how you can propose tax hikes without looking at what the scholars say, the studies say. look, if there was studies out there says raising taxes, great for the economy, i'd get behind it. but you know what, brenda? every single scholarly study for the past 15 years has said one thing: higher taxes, negatively impact growth. it's funny, forget all that, though. if you just look anecdotally, when the left wants to inhibit behavior, whether it's energy consumption or cigarette smoking or any one of the other things they have, what's the very first thing they do? they raise t
. >> i want to -- you look at all the numbers we got this week, the gdp report, the economy technically shrinking by 0.1 for the fourth quarter and most of it being chalked up to government -- to the lack of government spending particularly in the defense industry. and yet there were other parts of it in the private sector that looked strong. what's the reality here? are we an economy that's growing, that's recovering, or are we in an economy that's still on shaky ground? >> we're growing and we're recovering. the economy as measured by, say, gdp, that's kind of the economy's bottom line, that's the value of all the things we produce, that's been going 2%, 2.5%, and i don't think it's changed, that's about what we're growing right now. that's okay. but it's certainly not good enough in the context of the 7%, now 7.9% unemployment rate. yes, the economy is growing. yes, with each passing month we're on more sound ground but, you know, i don't think anyone's going to feel really good until unemployment is below 6%. >> and the big issue continues, one of the odd issues has to be consumer c

economy, and the influence of our diplomacy and the creative energy of our people remain unrivaled. no, it is because as the world has changed, so to have a level -- the levers of power that can most effectively shape international affairs. i have come to think about it like this. truman and acheson were killed in the parthenon with classical geometry and clear lines. tellers or a handful of big institutions and alliances dominated by major powers. that structure delivered unprecedented peace and prosperity. time takes its toll, even on the greatest edifice. we do need a new architecture for this new world. more frank gehry than formal greek. some of his work at first might appear have howser. in fact, it is highly intentional -- half hazard. in fact, it is highly intentional and sophisticated. today, we need a dynamic mix of materials and structures. american military and economic strength will remain the foundation of our global leadership. as we saw from the intervention to stop the massacre in libya to the rate at brought osama bin laden to justice, there will always be times when
. >> business has created 2.2 million jobs last year. we just learned that our economy created more jobs over the last few months than economists originally thought, but this week we received the first estimate of the economic growth over the last few months. it reminded us that bad decisions in washington can get in the way of our economic progress. >> jamie: just yesterday we saw the recent job numbers tick up and the u.s. economy is worse off than it was four years ago in four major categories. let's take a look. first unemployment rate january 2009, it was 7.8% and it is 7.9%. then under employment, percentage of americans who are not working as much as they are able to. in 2009 it was 14.2% and today it kicked up to 14.4%. four years ago, 12 million americans were out of work and now it's 12.3 million. today less than 64% of americans that are capable of working are actually out there looking. that is down 2% from 2009. let's bring in angela and jehmu greene and former president of the women's media center. nice to see you. okay, let me ask you first, angela, it sounds like more finger p
. we still have a risk to the economy. i don't see us heading off to a robust, fast recovery. i think 2013 will be better than 2012. i wish i could tell you that it would be really good because that's what we need. >> i don't call myself an economist. i specialize in economic policy. i try to be a good consumer of other forecasts. one thing i learned from that is frankly i don't trust any macro forecast that goes beyond six months. i don't think -- they are just guessing beyond that. i think we probably -- at least i would have similar reactions. i am still concerned about the risks posed by europe. i'm still quite concerned about the risks from things heating up in the middle east. the u.s. economy is repairing itself. we don't have at significant housing drag that we did a year or two ago. balance sheets are repairing. yes, things seem to be heading in the right direction. but i also think that people often make the mistake of confusing the level for the growth rate. i think we need to understand that even if the economy grows at 2% or 3% this year which seems to be the optimistic b
, minus one, plus one. all that is a power point. our economy is sluggish today, and there's no reason for it. we have a wonderful country. we have great resources, we still have a free world, the opportunity to move forward. here's my message to the leadership in washington, get in the game. >> thank you. >> join us on monday. have a great weekend. "squawk on the street" starts right now. >>> we have breaking news on this jobs friday. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm melissa lee, with carl quintanilla and david faber. we're closing in on 14,000. a leg higher in futures just moments ago. the dow looking at 112 points at the open. the s&p 500 looking at about 11 at the open. of course, this is after the best month for january, since january of 1987. as for the picture over in europe, taking the lead from here in the united states in terms of gains, we do see the cap up by 1.3%, and the dax in germany up .6 of 1%. in asia, the real star is the nikkei, embarking on 12-week winning streak with the yen weakening down to 92 versus the u.s. dollar. of course, the road map here starts wi
to the economy. a day after the dow closed above the 14,000 mark for the first time since before the financial crisis. >> we are poised to grow in 2013. and the real signs of progress. home prices are starting to climb again. car sales are at a five-year high. manufacturing is roaring back. our businesses created 2.2 million jobs last year. and we just learned that our economy created more jobs over the last few months than economists originally thought. >> now, former senator scott brown says he will not run on a special senate election in massachusetts. it's a setback. republicans who hope to win the seat vacated by secretary of state john kerry. brown lost hre-election bid to elizabeth warren in november. for more on the response to the milestone week to the dow, let's go to kristen welker at the white house for us. good saturday morning to you. what is the take on the latest economic news, after the rocky start with the negative gdp number? >> good morning, alex. a real mixed bag this week. the white house responding as they typically do, when we get one of these jobs reports or gdp report
in washington are giving us what is good for the economy and that is a on a diet while the private sector continues to grow and when you compare us to the last expansion there were 150,000 private sector jobs added herman in the last expansion and in this expansion there are 200,000. believe it or not washington may be helping us. dagen: if times are so great, why is the ten year treasury below 2% on a yield? why hasn't the bond bear market showed up yet? which you were calling for last march? >> you are right. i got to tell you it has probably more to do with the craziness of central bankers than anything else? i was just in davos last weekend we spent a lot of time talking about the monetary policy, what is going on, how unorthodox this all is. the thing that i said to mark carney of the head of the bank of england was waived lb into uncharted waters and acknowledging we don't know how to get home we decided to sell deeper into uncharted waters. we are setting ourselves up for major problems. the fact that the fed continues to keep interest rates this low especially when i can point to

if the numbers are so bad. >> there were signs that the economy is holding. particularly, when you look at the strength in the fourth quarter, for all the complaints, the economy is showing resilience in the face of the mess going on in washington. in a way, that is good news and i can be positive for stocks. there is nothing in this report that would suggest the fed will change anytime soon. we will continue to see more buying of treasury security, the liquidity will continue to benefit the equity markets. melissa: i was also surprised to see an upward revision for september and december. if you put together the upward revisions, it was an extra 127,000 jobs that we did not know about. >> the tricky thing about the gdp number, though, digging under the surface, it was quite strong. stronger in the fourth quarter than it has been since the beginning of 2012. i think the strong employment numbers and income numbers kind of fit together. melissa: michelle girard, thank you so much. appreciate it. have a good day. lori: ubs getting bearish on the bond market. a new investor classification

[applause] >> okay. first of all, it is great to be back. we enjoyed our relationship that way. tokyo has been the headquarters of our asia-pacific operations for 25 years now. we enjoy a terrific relationship and a lot of different ways. one of my colleagues who is with me, doug peterson who just joined us from the city, and he is setting up. we welcome you, doug. dougie is all over the world. as such, he has lived quite a bit of time in japan himself. it's great to be with you tonight as well, doug. let's see. in terms of this whole notion of the book, by the way, a very modest title, banker to the world. when i heard of this, and i am a very close, personal friend of bill's, like everyone in this room is. and so when he was talking to me about this concept of what he wanted to write about to lessons of debt crises and all of this, i just knew that it was right in our sweet spot, what we needed to the will to do. so we were able to convince them. so no i'm not talking
the economy, they say, is starting to turn around. what is going on here? we will bring in the senior business correspondent and anchor of bulls & bears. thank you for joining us. this number, then, is increasing. in fact, two years ago, 42 percent of retirees were putting off retirement. why the increase? >> it has been -- we have been getting more gray as a workforce because people have longer life spans and they have better health. we have switched from defined pension benefits to more risky 401(k) plans for people who have worked longer. the last two years was a dramatic jump leaving us to think it is something to do with the economy. people have been drawing down the 401(k)'s and into their savings because they have lost jobs and the value of homes are going down. the storm now is back where it was before the big financial meltdown in 2008 but, however, there is a feeling of insecurity. that is what is driving people to stay in the workforce longer. >>heather: home prices are rising now, and you mention the stock which has turned around if now. so, with the economy possibly rebounding, ho

. because of what we saw in the final quarter of the year 2012, the economy actually shrank as defense contractors -- or in part because defense contractors said you know he what? the axe is about to fall. get ready for this. we're going to pull back now. remember, we spend more than $900 billion a year on the defense department, on the pentagon, and so these contractors have a lot to say about the overall size of our economy. the president having seen that is going to say look. we have these cuts that we agreed to go into place, but the economy can't handle it right now, so let's kick the can a little bit and do some of these same kinds of cuts, and they call them cuts, but they're not really cuts. sometimes they're reductions to future increases, sometimes they're taking into account things like not fighting in the iraq war any more, and accounting gimmickry to get to the next thing, and then we'll fall off that cliff when we get to it. >> we understand the president is going to highlight some bad things that will happen if this doesn't get resolved, things like kids getting kicked o
's lives. that means we want to advance pro-growth reforms good for the economy. there are immigration things that are good for the economy. >> immigration was the first policy he talked about when he talked about pro-growth reforms. some workers, who are typically recovering, the best way to help them is with better training, better generous income tax credit, that is easier to provide in a growing economy with younger workers than in a sluggish one with budget deficits. immigration is not what hurts them, and it is not standing in the way of aiding them. in 2007, the congressional budget office found that legalizing undocumented immigrants would increase revenue by $48 billion, while costing only $3 billion increased public services. and that is before you get into the broader economic benefits. there are very few free lunches in public policy. usually it is a realm of hard choices, but taking advantage of our unique position as the country with the world's best and brightest, desperately a way to go? that is surely correct. "the ed show" is up next. >>> good evening, americans, and
as we expected. >> the economy is tanking. >> remember the shovel-ready jobs that weren't shovel ready. >> shovel ready was not as shovel ready as we expected. >> we have had four years of the obama economy. it hasn't worked. >> it's been tanking for four years. >> the worst the jobs council did was very helpful. >> the jobs council that didn't embrace the president's jobs program is when you have to say, what are they up to. >> jobs council -- >> a number of ideas was acted on by this administration. as part of the president's overall commitment to job creation and economic growth. >> shovel ready was not as ready as shovel ready as we expected. >> as it turns out he had a whole bunch of business people that were trying to be good enough to get a food goodies from the president. >> you are more concerned with meetings than progress. >> there haven't been the recovery. now, we have the fourth quarter where the economy shrank. it contracted. >> greta: now what? ron johnson joins us, republican senator. i may be one of the few that it's not a big deal because i thought it was a silly pho
the end. that's for sure. >> oh, yeah. >> john berman, many thanks to you. >>> let's turn to the economy and new and encouraging signs this rng mmorning, more evidenc jobs market is recovering, albeit agonizingly slowly. 157,000 jobs were added last month and later this hour, wall street begins the day a little giddy. the dow celebrating its best january gains since 1994, and it all comes on the heels of president obama disbanding his jobs council, a group of business leaders who advised him on the economy. republicans were quick to seize on the news, scoffing at the white house's handling of the council and the economy overall. >> if the white house spent nearly as much time trying to actually fix the economy as it did claiming it was fixed and then finding excuses and sca scape goats when its premature announcements were false i suspected the economy would be better than it is doing here today. >> christine romans, is he right? the unemployment rate is still what, 7.9% now. >> yes, 7.9%, 157,000 jobs created in january. that's modest hiring. that is an economy that is healing still slo
of months. to be sure the economy created jobs but it's at a relatively modest pace. we had a report recently of a contraction in the nation's output in the fourth quarter of last year. increasingly you have people like laura tyson writing columns calling for the need for a plan for faster growth, not deficit reduction. what is the president -- i know you've talked about how all the president's plans envision job creation, but what does the president tell his advisors when he sees these signs of a sluggish recovery? what is he asking in the way of things to speed recovery, create jobs and stimulate growth? >> i'll go to the narrow question first. every time the president meets with his economic advisors to discuss policy proposals and refinements to existing policies, the focus is on job creation and economic growth. and that includes when we have discussions about deficit reduction. as i've said many times and as the president has made clear, deficit reduction is not a goal unto itself. it is a means to, if done right , the desired goal, which is greater growth and greater job creat
the unemployment rate had inched up to 7.9% again, while the economy actually added 157,000 jobs, not as many as hoped for or expected. nbc's tom costello starts us off in our washington newsroom tonight with what all of this might mean. tom, good evening. >> hi, brian. the good news, anyone with retirement money invested in stocks has made back much of what they lost during the great recession and the wall street selloff, about $8 trillion. a big rally on wall street today, with the dow back over 14,000. a lot has changed since the last time it crossed that mark on october 12th, 2007. within a year, lehman brothers and bear stearns failed. housing prices went off a cliff. the unemployment rate went from 4.7% to 10% before falling back to 7.9% today. in portland, oregon this week, more than 900 people applied for 160 new jobs at two new hardware stores. >> 80% of the people we saw were -- had been out of work for three months to up to two years. >> reporter: julie ober has been out of work for 16 months. >> my last job was front desk at a pain management company. and just -- i ac

is? but if you want to compete in the local economy you may want to brush up in one of the biggest economies. the u.k.'s next generation may not be able to compete on the global stage because there's not enough schools teaching mandarin chinese. the british council found only 3% of primary and 9% of secondary schools say their schools offer mandarin and china becoming the world's second biggest economy in 2011. so why should we learn this language? some say you are guaranteed a job if you learn it. >> it's what the chinese call chinese rice bowl. if you learn mandarin, you're made for life. i can think of two or three lads i've interviewed in schools in london were literally the age of 17 fighting off u.k. customers. three or four or five fighting off job offers. 150,000 with french and 200 ,000-plus with mandarin. >> you probably can't see these from where you're sitting. tiny things. canadian pennies. say goodbye. tell you about this story. they are getting rid of them. there are 6 billion in circulation but today is the day they are gone. >> thank you. >> well, say with us here
if the government is hurting the economy and keeping people from being enthusiastic or excited because of all the milestones with the debt ceiling and next up sequestration. >> i think that's exactly right. you see that for the gdp numbers, for example. fourth quarter gdp numbers down and in large part because of government spending. redust in the military spending because of the draw down in the war but government spending does help the economy. >> right. >> clear that's been the case looking, for example, at great britain. they're in the double-dip recession right now doing the same austerity measures republicans oppose and we have had 6.1 million new jobs added in this economy and i think that the problems are we have to invest in education, make sure people have opportunities and make sure that the government doesn't pull back right now. >> what we also know is there are republicans who still strongly say and assert that the stimulus did not work and they do not believe in exactly what you just said. >> economists, the majority of those interviewed by "wall street journal" believes the st
